I love plucking the starting seed pods off, I get to smell like pesto every other day!

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Be careful not to overwater. Here in Missouri, if I had herbs in a container, I could water them all I wanted, because it is hot and dry here.

In cool and rainy Ireland, overwatering could cause problems. Let the soil dry before you water, and hope that the garden shop guy used potting mix that drains well, and that the pot itself has holes in the bottom.

Put the pot where it will get sun thru most of the day--most herbs love sun and heat.

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I am having trouble with slugs eating my cilantro. Went out Thursday morning and had about 20 on the 3 plants. They aren't bothering any of the other spices. I have a insect spary concentrate that I got at the nursery last year for vegetables and herbs, when I had Army worms on my Bush Basil. I sprayed the cilantro and it looks like it worked.
